    We are visiting Disney the first week in October. I haven't been in 22 years, I'm so excited. I know the parking has changed. My questions are - When we pay for parking, does that cover for that day even if we leave the park and return?

    Hi Vicki and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    22 YEARS?? You must be SO excited! I'm excited for you!!! Your trip is coming up so soon, too! Before you know it, you'll be in the middle of the magic. Since you haven't visited Walt Disney World Resort in a while, there have been some parking changes. If you are a guest of a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will pay for parking at your Resort Hotel but you will not have to pay for theme park parking. 

    If you are not a guest of a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will pay for parking at the theme parks. When you enter the parking lot for the first time, you will pay to park. Keep your receipt. If you leave and return within the same day, you will simply need to show your receipt to prove you have already paid to park. 

    Vicki, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other questions! 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
